In 1958 LSU finished first in the AP poll, their first top 20 showing in almost a decade. The Tigers prided themselves on defense. Led by their defensive subs, known as the "Chinese Bandits", they finished the season 11-0 and didn't give up a touchdown all season.<p>Coach Paul Dietzel took advantage of a new substitution rule which allowed any player to come off the field, and go back in again, once each quarter. This wasn't exactly 2 platoon football, but it allowed Coach Dietzel to run with 3 platoons: a 2 way unit of his best players, an offensive second team, and a defensive second team.<p><b><font color=blue>This shirt runs on the small side.</font></b>
